Our featured home today is one of a pair of sprawling Tudor revivals designed by Henry Gutterson for the Sperry family on Hawthorne Terrace. They are a bit of a departure from Gutterson’s typical residences which tend to be very staid and symmetrical. These homes ramble a bit in true period revival fashion, but even so their composition still shows a good deal of Gutterson’s trademark balance. Interestingly, the home was reportedly partially remodeled in 1963 by respected mid-century architect Henry Hill, but clearly he used a fairly light touch as the home still appears far more period revival than modern.
